NCIS is one of those hidden gems you always hunt for and so rarely find. A great ensemble cast headed by Mark Harmon (as special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs) makes the whole show look so effortless. As with his other productions, Donald Bellisario has created a great group of characters who are so down-to-earth that you immediately see them as almost real. The stories can be far-fetched on occasion, but the real interest in the show is the cast of characters. Ably supported by Michael Wetherly (as Agent Tony DiNozzo), Pauly Perrette (as forensic expert Abby Sciuto) Cote de Pablo (as Mossad Agent Ziva David) Sean Murray (as Agent Timothy McGee), Lauren Holly (as Director Jenny Shepard), and David McCallum (as Medical Examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard) Harmon acts as team leader and sometimes, stern father to the younger agents under his command.

Harmon and McCallum, the two old pros, often show up the younger actors with their seamless, believable performances, but everyone on this show is great. The characters all interact with one another more like a family than a working group, and the loss of one of the main characters at the end of Season Two gave everyone a chance to show their acting chops in dealing with the death of a friend who was more than just a co-worker. If there is a weak spot in this third season, it has to be the addition of Jenny Shepard as the new director. And old flame of Gibbs, there is entirely too much time wasted on fuzzy out of focus flashbacks of their evidently red-hot love affair in Paris, only hinted at (far too much) and never really explained.

This series has been a class act from the first season. The proof of depth in this show is the loss of a major character at the end of the second season and replacement in the third. This is a great example of an ensemble cast. The actors have created believeable characters. Dialogue sounds like real conversation. Couple this with some really tight writing spiced with some fine humor and you have some excellent television. Story threads run through episodes giving a greater sense of continuity but it is not necessary to view in strict order. I have both season 1 and 2 and look forward to the release of season 3 with great anticipation.

It was rough enough for the fans of NCIS to lose Kate Todd by having Ari Haswari snipe her at the end of Season 2. So, starting Season 3 off by showing Kate's murder from Ari's POV is a little rougher. But the two episodes that start off Season 3 of NCIS--the two part "Kill Ari" episodes--really bring up a subject in this series that hadn't been fully fleshed out. Obviously, these two episodes allow the regular characters to come to grips with the loss of Kate--the irony of Kate's ghost talking to Ducky and Ducky not talking back to the ghost, the overall story of how the survivors all see Kate. McGee seeing a superwoman, Abby seeing Elvira, Tony being Tony in seeing Kate (That schoolgirl outfit), and Gibbs seeing Kate as he last saw her--with a hole between her eyes. Just as obviously, "Kill Ari" allows for the introduction of Cote De Pablo's Ziva David, the Mossad/Masada agent liased to NCIS in the wake of Kate's death and Lauren Holly's Jenny Sheppard--Gibbs' former partner/lover who rose beyond working the field to the NCIS director's job.
But my observation after a couple of viewings of this box set is that the underlying story of the season is the revelations about the history of Leroy Jethro Gibbs. For much of the first two seasons, Mark Harmon's "tough, no-nonsense investigator" (To quote the liner notes on the set) has always had an understated sense of humor that has allowed him to smile quitely at the office interaction between the members of the team while presenting his harder face. But that exterior begins to crack in the "Kill Ari" episodes; the mystery surrounding Jethro's background begins to unfold as Ari murders Kate, then takes his shot at Abby and captures Dr. Mallard.

I'm so glad that the release schedule is speeding up. This is truly the only current series that I simply MUST watch and will buy every season released on DVD. I do disagree wtih the lack of Bloopers, or as the NCIS cast and crew call it, the Michael Weatherly Show. C'mon, Don, Charles, John, please, please, please...for season 4?

Wow, this series came alive in the third season. Personally, I believe the introduction of the character of Ziva made all the difference. I never liked the previous female foils for the male characters. But Ziva, the Israeli agent, is aggressive, mysterious and has tremendous charisma. This is a great ensemble cast headed by Mark Harmon. David McCallum is adorable as the medical examiner. This is a lighter weight program than the CSI's or Criminal Minds, but I never tire of it. I even watch this one in re-runs. Highly recommended.
